O-Fest, VU's orientation, is hands-down the best way to become familiar with uni life, in a fun and relaxed environment, according to final year Bachelor of Education (P-12) student Troy Flores.
“O-Fest helped me the most. I got to know my teachers and I got a proper tour of the campus. After that, things didn’t seem so big anymore,” he says.
All of VU’s clubs and social groups come out to play at O-Fest. So whether you’re passionate about hiking, urban gardening, politics, the arts or AFL, it's the perfect opportunity to find your tribe. O-Fest is also a great way to let your hair down before uni kicks off.
Alice Growden, second year student, Bachelor of Commerce (Applied Finance)/Law, used O-Fest to sign up for a whole host of university experiences. She joined VU’s Dictum Society and has helped publish several law-based articles, and she has volunteered for various leadership positions.
“I signed up to become a student ambassador. This position really boosted my confidence and helped me make a heap of new friends,” she says.
